Smoke, Shit, and Fuck — by John Hartford
jh70-08-29t17.mp3 (vbr)
Philly Folk Festival — Aug 29, 1970

John Hartford's most famous cover tune:

Steam Powered Aereo-plain, 7:05

1st Marin County Bluegrass Fest, April 28, 1974

w/ Vassar Clements, Norman Blake, Tut Taylor

John's intro: "It goes about 35 or 40 mph thru the air. It's real laid back, and it's powered by steam. People are laying out on the wing in lawn chairs smokin' dope and waving at the people down in the street."

"Smoke, Shit, and Fuck"

Sorry -- not going to force matters -- that's just not enough, esp as you age.

It might be fine for some but most people are going to get into trouble with idol hands. Adding just music is a temporary fix, as you can easily see with musicians themselves.
